Bicep Tendon Injuries
Biceps tendonitis also usually occurs due to being pinched in impingement syndrome. In these cases the cause is basically stemmed to adhesions in the rotator cuff. The treatment results are the same as impingement in this case, with treatment to the rotator cuff using Active Release resolving the problem. Refer to the section on Impingement Syndrome for more details.
Other biceps tendon injuries may include a dislocation of the biceps tendon. The biceps tendon normally sits in a groove along the humerus. The shoulder capsule and several tendons and a ligament assist in holding the biceps tendon inside that groove. When there is rupture of the ligament that holds the biceps tendon in the groove of the humerus, this allows the biceps tendon to flop in and out of the groove as we move the shoulder.
What's Going Wrong In A Bicep Tendon Injury?
How Can ART Help Bicep Tendon Injuries?Adhesions in the bicep muscle, in the deltoid, upper pec or in the subscapularis muscle will make it easier for the biceps tendon to dislocate. Removing adhesions in these muscles will reduce the tension on the biceps tendon and improve the ability of the subscapularis tendon to hold the biceps in place. In more severe cases, bony spurring can develop along the bicep tendon groove that can also lead to irritation and serious damage of the bicep tendon. Sometimes these more severe cases will only improve with surgery.
